The course maintains an enviable reputation for play on full greens throughout the year. A natural sandy sub-soil, good drainage and a full course irrigation system helps ensure the course is at its best whatever the weather.
Many of the original features of the Harry Colt design, most notably his renowned deep bunkers and subtle greens, are still evident today.
In my opinion to be a good coach you have to be prepared to continue learning about the game of golf, to improve your own coaching methods and always be flexible to accommodate the needs and aspirations of the student.
